The week view

Central to Week Calendar is the week view, which is optimized to show just the right amount of details on the small iPhone screen.

However, using the eye icon on the bottom bar, you can switch between list, day, week, agenda, month, or year views.

Gestures

Week Calendar makes full use of the iPhone's multitouch screen by supporting lots of common gestures.

In week view, you can pinch-to-zoom either horizontally to show less days or vertically to show more or less hours.

All-day events

You can create events without a specific time, such as Birthdays, by setting the All-day switch to ON in Start & End time.

All-day events are shown at a special area in the week view to not interfere with your normal calendar.


Alerts

Setting an alert will notify you in time for an event. You can either pick one of the pre-defined entries, or tap on Custom to set your own alert time up to 366 days in advance with a one minute precision.

Tap on Exact date to set the alert on a specific date and time.

Contacts

You can link contacts to events by using the Contacts option: select a contact and their phone number or e-mailaddress.
The contacts will get an entry in the event details linking to their AddressBook page.

Repeating events

If you have an event that occurs regularly, you can automatically repeat it by setting the Repeat option.
First, pick if you want to repeat the event on a Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Yearly basis.

Next, set how often the event should be repeated, e.g. every 2 weeks. Now, pick the details of the recurrence. For Weekly repeats you can select the week days the events should occur on.

For monthly recurrence, you can use Each option to specify the month days to occur on, e.g. 5, 8 and 7 December.

Or the On the option to repeat on like as fourth Monday or second week day.

Events Colors

A unique feature of Week Calendar is being able to color code individual events. You can do this when editing an event by setting the Custom Color option.

If you want to add more colors or rename the colors to match their usage (e.g. Blue = Sports), please go to Settings > Auto Colors > Customize Colors.

Auto Colors

With Auto Colors can also automatically set custom colors based on keywords.
You can find this option under Settings > Auto Colors.

Templates

If you have events that you use often, you can make a template out of them by going into the event details and tapping on Add as template.

When adding an event, you can fill it in quickly by tapping on the blue bookmarks button and selecting the template you want to use.

You can edit, reorder, delete and add templates under Settings > New events & templates.
Week Calendar will also keep a list of recently added events under the bookmarks button, so you can quickly access recent events.

Default values

Under Settings > New events & templates > Default values, you can define the duration, alerts, calendar and color that by default will be used for new events.

TimeZone

When travelling, you want to enable TimeZone Support in both Week Calendar and the native iPhone app.
If you set the timezone to your home timezone, the events won't move when travelling.
If TimeZone Support is disabled, the events will adjust themselves to the timezone you are currently in.

Birthday alert

You can set an alert for all birthdays at once under Settings > New events & templates > Birthday alert.

The week view uses a custom setting under Settings > Day & Week; Week starts at, which you can set to special values such as Current day of the week.
